Right now I'm hanging out in the lounge (what a killer view we have here! A straight shot at a downtown city scape!) waiting for my lesson at 10:00 and watching clouds sailing over the wind-buffeted lake Michigan. I've practiced a ton for this lesson, but still feel that I'm less prepared than I wish I could be. The NUSO concert this past Saturday went fantastically well and I was pretty much at the top of my game. It was good to log a performance I feel satisfied with, but for the rest of the week I'll be battling just to survive on my horn. We're playing Holst "The Planets" in rep class today, I'm playing 1st on Tchaik V on Thursday, and we've got a batch of new orchestra music that (some of it anyway) is quite challenging.
Somebody just walked in the lounge and said the Intercampus Shuttle service is running 2 busses behind...it must be a mess out there somewhere. My guess is there are power outages all over that have knocked out traffic signals...thank goodness I don't have to drive anywhere!
I just walked outside and took some better pictures...check out that sky!
